Today sees the exciting launch of the Vert Business Community, a membership-based, online community, specifically aimed at helping small businesses prosper and grow. “We wanted to give small business owners access to the best guidance and support available, and to each other, at a very reasonable cost – something they’ve never had before.” said Laurence Milton, Vert’s CEO. “Of all UK businesses, 91% have less than £1m of turnover, and the majority of these business owners lack the skill-set required, outside of their own expertise, to develop their businesses further when they hit the “brick-wall”. They need to develop their management skills but cannot afford to do so – UNTIL NOW!”
Vert’s founders, a group of highly experienced small-business entrepreneurs, with backgrounds as varied as accountancy, marketing, and business coaching, and with an enviable record of developing businesses from zero into multi-million pound companies, bring a real passion to helping small businesses thrive and grow.
“There is no doubt that the future of business is entrepreneurial. VERT is taking the lead in providing these entrepreneurs with affordable access to the skill-sets required to develop their businesses, using programmes and resources specifically designed to be delivered via the internet” said Laurence.
Dr. Kev Roberts, Vert’s Technical Director, added “small business owners today face a unique set of challenges. They feel isolated, can’t afford the business help they really need and end up simply hoping things will change for the better. Our growth programme shows them exactly how to make positive changes to every aspect of their business and gives them a real sense of belonging to a community. We’ve been running a free trial for some time now and the response we’ve had is fantastic. As soon as people start to do something positive for their business, they start to feel so much better about themselves.”
